The Super Bowl has created many one-hit wonders during the years — Redskins RB Timmy Smith,Raiders LB Jack Squirek and the undercover cop who took down Eugene Robinson the night before Super Bowl XXXIII.
And this year, another star was born — Brett Keisel‘s beard.
There was no bigger star at the Super Bowl than Keisel’s beard. Well, other than Hugh Jackman.
Nobody is bigger than Hugh Jackman.
Now the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting that Keisel will shave his beard for charity. Apparently, NFL.com isn’t the only one hurting for news right now.
Before that beard is shaved however, a word of advice to Keisel. Are you crazy man? Shaving that beard is going to be box office death. The beard is your moneymaker. Did BJ (Greg Evigan) ever work after he ditched the Bear? Did David Hasselhoff thrive when he ditched the sand and silicon in Santa Monica? The Hoff didn’t make headlines again until he started eating cheeseburgers off a tile floor. And if the references to 80s TV shows doesn’t get to you, how about the narrative of Samson?
Do you really want any of that, Brett?
But you can’t blame Keisel for wanting to raise money for UPMC’s Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Not only is this a worthy cause, Keisel can finally use the Christmas present his wife gave him — a new razor.
